It’s important to know that in addition to its amazing benefits, this surgical procedure can also lead to severe skin complications. Therefore it’s recommended that before undergoing this surgery you must know about all the dos and don’ts along with how to choose your plastic surgeon.
Why Do You Need Breast Augmentation?
There is no doubt that the breasts play an important part in defining a women’s personality. The appearance of the breasts can either complement the bodily features or destroy confidence and self-esteem. For some women, being flat-chested can be a constant bother.
Many women undergo this procedure because of cosmetic reasons, deformation issues, and mastectomies (breast tissue removal due to breast cancer). Breast augmentation can improve breast size making them look fuller and perkier.

Goals of the breast enhancement surgery in Dubai include:
- To increase the bra cup size

- To complement the overall body look
- Enhance the size and shape of breasts after weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
- Restore breast symmetry (one breast is smaller or larger than the other) and body contours

Breast Augmentation Techniques
Using Implants for breast augmentation is very common because these implants can enhance and improve breast size and shape. Plenty of women use implants for breast augmentation and are enjoying fuller and perkier breasts.
What are Breast Implants
Breast implants are medical shells that are mostly made up of silicone. These implants come in a teardrop, large and round sizes and shapes. They can enhance the size of breasts while ensuring a beautiful and natural look.
There are many different types of breast implants available at EuroMed Clinic, each of them is suitable for different candidates with different needs. They include:
- Breast implants made of silicone
- The gummy bear implants
- Saline & structured saline breast implants
- Round & textured breast implants
Breast Augmentation Using Breast Implants
Different techniques are available for breast augmentation. Some of the most common and effective techniques being offered at EuroMed Clinic include:
The Short Scar Breast Augmentation
This breast augmentation technique using implants involves making an incision of about 3cm on the underside of the breasts and the implant is put into the pocket made with the help of a special device known as the Keller-funnel. The size of these incisions is 1.7cm that usually shrinks to 1.5cm with time.
Scarless Breast Augmentation (No-Visible Scar)
In the scarless breast augmentation, the surgical incisions are made under the armpit or crease of the breast in such a way that the scar is not visible to the onlooker. An umbilical incision can also be done for some women for scarless breast enhancement.
Breast Augmentation Without Using Implant
AFT Breast Augmentation (Fat Transfer)
In this type of breast augmentation, no implants are used. Instead, the surgeon extracts the excess fat from another part of the patient’s body and transfers it to the breasts to increase their size.
How to Prepare for Breast Enhancement
There are no special preparations for this procedure as the patients just need to follow a few instructions from their plastic surgeon.
- Undergo blood tests, breast mammography, and ultrasonography, and any other procedure that the surgeon has recommended. This will provide your practitioner with better insights into your health and condition.
- Don’t use any cosmetics or any other moisturizer on the target area unless recommended by the surgeon
- Do not use any medication that causes blood thinning
- Quitting smoking before the procedure can help speed up the recovery
Breast Augmentation Procedure
Here is the step by step breast enlargement procedure:
Step 1: The patient is made unconscious with the help of general anesthesia and the target area is cleaned.
Step 2: Incisions are made depending on the technique being used.
Step 3: Pockets are created with the help of incisions and implants are inserted inside these pockets. Silicone implants are inserted prefilled but saline implants are filled with saline solution after insertion.
Step 4: In the last step the incisions are closed with the help of surgical stitches or sutures.
This procedure takes 90-120 minutes at max and usually does not require an overnight stay. Some patients feel dizzy after the surgery because of the general anesthesia which is why we recommend bringing someone with you who could drive you back to your home.
